So I have a problem: I can’t walk past a bookstore without going in. And when I go in, I end up buying stuff. Then I end up with more books than I’ll even have time to read. But sometimes you can’t say no: like when bargain books are marked down even further (score!) Or when an author you like has a new book out (score!) Or you have a 15% off coupon (score again!)
So recently I’ve bought:
– An anthology of works by Hans Christian Andersen
– Starling by Lesley Livingston
– The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
– Libyrinth by Pearl North
– Wicked by Gregory Maguire
Of course it might take me awhile to read all of these: I’m still working my way through the third book in the Hex Hall series.
This weekend in my city. Major discounts on hard covers and paperbacks! This is the sort of thing I live for. The only thing more fun than reading books is buying them. I definitely have a problem with buying too many books. I can’t walk past a bookstore without going in, and if I go in, 9 times out of 10 I have to buy something. It’s my only weakness. And if the prices are marked down then all bets are off.Don’t get me started on fancy book covers! Not judging a book by its cover is nice in theory, but come on: everyone does it. I’m hoping this isn’t all too good to be true: like it’ll only be stuff that’s from the reject bin of bad books that no one wanted to buy. But I guess we’ll see. Should be fun either way.
As you might have guessed, this blog is about a girl named Becky who loves books. Okay, so it’s not the most original title, but I needed to decide on something and not keep putting off starting a blog because I couldn’t think of a snappy title. So here it is: Becky the Book Lover.
I read a lot but I’m also a writer. I’ve already finished one novel and am working on the sequel right now while I search for a literary agent. Maybe you’ll be seeing me in print some day!
But for now, I want to write about the thing I love most: books! I’m always reading at least one. I’ve been reading a lot of YA in the last year because that’s the age group that I’m writing for. I might also blog about whatever TV shows I’m watching, what music I’m listening to and all that other good stuff. :]
